2 posts in 1 day

Just had to post this photo of my attempt at the Monday treat over on What the cook is that?

Today is Mocha Chocolate Cupcakes. I found them very easy to make and though I don't like coffee cake as a rule I found this one is not too overpowering. I have just put icing sugar on mine but if you go on to the site she has has some amazing toppings. I also found that my cake cases were too small but I used them in a muffin tray and the cakes raised above them but didn't go all over. This is another one I will do again.

Found a new blog.

Was having a quick look at one of the blogs I stalk the other day and she had posted about a new blog called "What the cook is that" well you have to have a look don't you! This is my take on her Cheese and Bacon Muffins. I am not that good at photo shop so this is how the photo turned out. I must say they are quite scrummy even though the might not look it in the photo.

Oh no I have just had another look today and she has chocolate cakes...........

Back again.......

Well I did think all my bad luck was well behind me, that is obviously not the case.

This last ten days or so has seen me waiting for a designer that came over to get in touch so she could come and do a class for my ladies. not a word! When I eventually get in touch with her she had not got my last email so thought I had cancelled.

I went to a meeting with the local council and the girl who wants to take my unit to sign it over and get the two thousand pounds they owe me, to be told that they will see me again in 10 days as they haven't had chance to talk about it yet....... I moved out almost a year ago.

Then the worst bit of news was my Mother in law died. It was expected as she has not been well for a while, but Hal had been over to see her just a few weeks ago and see had seemed to be on the up.

I did get one piece of good news it looks like I and going to get my CJ back. I sent it out over a year ago but with the way my year has been I never got to finish a lot of the pages for the other ladies, so I thought that I wouldn't see it again but the lady that has it has been in touch and it is on its way back to me. Now I just feel bad that I didn't get to finish the rest of them. Hopefully I can get it touch with some of them and get them done.
